It has been several months since Chris traveled from home for work, since his last contract ended with him working from home. Samantha's level of comprehension has been amazing. Nearly every night when she would talk on the phone with Chris, her conversation would go something like this: "Love you Daddy, miss you, come home daddy, come home!" Jake is not yet at a point where he really understands what is going on, but he does seem to enjoy "talking" on the phone to Daddy.
Gampa drove back home with us yesterday and then took the train back home this morning. Chris was glad to not have to do that leg of the traveling. Samantha and Jake were very happy to be back with their Daddy as well as Mammo and Papi!
